Subject: Yes I know, interesting.
Thought this film was quite interesting, acted and well thought out. Basically a grandson learns the way of the Indian from his grandfather. They go into the forest and get into nature. Very interesting film. Highly reccomended!

Subject: Entertaining educational film
Very nice, I liked both the text and the editing style. Too bad most people can't make entertaining educational films like this anymore.

I enjoyed this, and reminded me of the early 70's to boot.
